The Consultation.

Our initial consultation which typically lasts about an hour is best done face to face at your premises. Its purpose is to help us understand your business and give you a very quick heads up on whether your development work meets the criteria of the tax credits scheme.

Any information you might provide is treated in confidence and we operate a non-disclosure policy in relation to your company and any information you might provide.

You don’t need to worry about providing us with accurate data at this point we are just exploring the development work you have undertaken.

At the end of the consultation we should be able to confirm whether your company has something worth exploring in greater detail. We are usually able to provide you with an estimate of the value of the scheme to your company.

There is no cost or obligation in such a meeting but we are confident you will have a much better understanding about the scheme and whether your company is likely to meet the criteria.
